  Annotation: This report attempts to describe the restructuring of policing, the reasons for it, and the issues it raises for governance.
Abstract: In the new model, the people who authorize policing have become separate from the people who do it, and the new players in policing are not part of formal government. The current restructuring of policing involves the shortcomings of the public police, increases in crime, the nature of economic systems, the character of government, social structure, ideas, and culture. At the same time that policing is being distributed to new groups within states, it is also being developed vigorously at international levels. Private multinational corporations now provide policing on a worldwide basis. Transnational cooperation among law enforcement agencies of nation-states is developing rapidly. And policing is being undertaken by genuinely international institutions such as the United Nations, the World Court and the European Union. Policing is being restructured away from nation-states by multilateralization within countries and supranationalization among countries. Note, bibliography
